Microsoft sees a lot of progress in selling its Surface tablets and laptops last month. One of its reasons is that people abandon the Mac. In a statement, Microsoft said:
“More people are switching from Macs to Surface than ever before. Our trade-in program for MacBooks was our best ever, and the combination of excitement for the innovation of Surface coupled with the disappointment of the new MacBook Pro – especially among professionals – is leading more and more people to make the switch to Surface, like this. It seems like a new review recommending Surface over MacBook comes out daily. This makes our team so proud, because it means we’re doing good work.” – Brian Hall, CVP Microsoft Devices Marketing
The design of MacBook Pro has become insipid. This year, however, it started to reclaim its design prowess by offering its users the Touch Bar. It is a feature that replaces function keys on top of the keyboard with a touch-sensitive display.
But the essential nature does not change. Its similar design style remains, including the weight and performance.
When Surface Book was introduced last year, it gave a fresh air to the world of the laptop. The team did build a spectacular laptop design, even if it still has room for improvement.
Microsoft has given its consumers two features for the Surface Book. The first astounding feature is the fulcrum hinge. It changes the laptop’s overall weight distribution as the keyboard stats grounded on a surface while you tilt the screen back. Tilting the screen back does not affect the unit’s stability.
The overall design of the Surface Book is said to be prominent in the crowd, even if it defaulted to silver-grey color, which is close to the MacBook. The design is modest and subtle that makes it stand out from the crowd.
It is another headline feature of Surface Book. The detachable screen was never presented to the public. But when Panos Panay demonstrated it outside the engineering team, there was the “one more” thing moment that definitely amazed the audience on launch day. When he showed it to the audience, everyone was filled with astonishment that the Surface Book could become a tablet.
What is more interesting is that there is no need for you to reboot the device when you detach the screen. All you have to do is touch its unlock button, and away you go.
The GPU of the unit is in the detachable keyboard. As long as it is connected, you can unlock the extra power of Nvidia GeoForce. Apart from that, this laptop moved the two of the biggest sources of heat away from each other, even though the CPU remains on the screen. This allows better thermal management.
“You should expect the best and we expect to give you the best, today and tomorrow. We will continue to create new experiences for you that will change the way you create, collaborate and have an impact on your world in 2017, and beyond. Thanks for making it a great holiday season!” – Brian
